Crucial 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT51264BF160BJ

5 out of 5 eggs Do not purchase for NUC5i5RYK 04/06/2015

This review is from: Crucial 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT51264BF160BJ

Pros: Works properly *alone* in the bottom slot of a new NUC.
Works properly in a pair in an older NUC.

Cons: Does not work in a pair in the new NUC5i5RYK. Beware that Newegg offered this as part of a combo deal. Even though the extension of the model number should only indicate that this is a 1 chip kit vs a 2 chip kit, 2 single chips of this type will not work.

Other Thoughts: I'm not giving this a low score because it is not the RAM's fault for being a part of a combo deal. A search for the model number (CT51264BF160BJ) indicates compatibility though this is false. Be extra careful. I'll be using this RAM in my older NUC and hopefully picking up a new chip that is compatible.

Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast data transfer
Large capacity

Cons: Drive is failing just outside the warranty period
Regular temperatures for the units are near 50c

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 of these between 9/12 and 12/12. One is beginning to fail with 483 days of power-on time. By comparison, I have other drives that have 3+ years of power-on time and are still going strong.

This drive was purposed as a backup device and was treated as such. I hoped it would last longer than 1 year though.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Powerful
Works as advertised

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a great power supply. It has a large, but relatively quiet cooling fan. I would buy this again.
